Sir No-Face comes to Huntsville
This makes me sad. There are these guys, paranormal investigator-slash-writer-slash-director Chad Calek and producer Justin Holstein, who have this documentary entitled SIR NO-FACE, which is touted (by them) as providing incontrovertible proof that ghosts exist. The documentary is touring the country, like a comedy show or rock band, and is making a stop in Huntsville, Alabama, the hometown of NASA and my not infrequent base of operations. I was really excited when I heard about it. I eat this kind of stuff up with a spoon. I am THE target audience for this sort of fare.
Then I reached out to the people behind the showing; whether that’s Calek or Holstein or somebody else, I don’t know. No reply. I tried again, via their social media page. Nothing. I tried a third time, and a fourth. Nada. I was offering them free publicity. I wanted to conduct an interview. They never answered my messages. After that, I started doing some checking. In addition to the prices for the showing of this documentary being ridiculously inflated, I have heard not a peep about it recently. Not online, not anywhere. No advertisements, no buzz. It makes me wonder if the event is still happening. I know a lot of the community in the area who’d be interested in this sort of thing, but I don’t know many who’d be willing to pay so much to see it. Maybe they haven’t sold any tickets at all and the event is cancelled. Who knows? I wasn’t going to go anyway, considering their not bothering to reply to my messages, and considering the extravagant cost. It could be that the video IS all that it is cracked up to be. The taking of it on the road, however, instead of into a laboratory where it could be tested by independent agencies, as well as the gratuitous pricing and the secretive marketing approach, all hint at a scam. Sir No-Face, if you’re real, I offer no insult to YOU, but these guys aren’t making you look good, if you know what I mean.
I offer the filmmakers the opportunity to speak for themselves, if they so choose. I will post any response I might receive from them, provided it is polite and professional. I DO want to be fair. But I also must be honest with you, my readers.
All I can tell you for certain at this point is that this was my experience with these people–which was in fact no experience at all, as I could not swear under oath that these folks even really exist–and that I find the whole thing suspicious. Which makes me sad, as I’d really have liked for the footage to be genuine and to be worthy of all the hoopla. I WANT to believe in Sir No-Face. Unfortunately the folks behind this documentary haven’t made that easy.
